12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Thanks to storminspank for this.

A: Darker yellow with light orange tint and a slight haze. Half finger white head with decent retention and lacing.

S: Citrus and floral hops with a good blend of caramel in it. Grapefruit that isn't over bearing with touches of a nice soapy floral hop. Well blended aroma.

T: Caramel throughout the mouth. Again the grapefruit with touches of floral notes. Not real bitter.

M: Light body. Medium carbonation. Very crisp and slightly dry.

O: A good pale ale. Probably easily accessible in the distribution area so it would be a good go to beer.

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Nonic Imperial Pint.

Appearance: Slightly cloudy orange with moderate white cap and light lacing.

Smell: Citrus-grapefruit, almost tangy, with some toast and pepper. Very dry.

Taste: The grapefruit-driven hop really shine through - citrusy, sticky, tart, tangy and bitter. There is some toasted malts underneath, but very light.

Feel: Moderate carbonation, fairly light but sticky body, very dry finish.

Overall: Mild Ale - that is hilarious. Besides the low abv, this is certainly not a Mild Ale. Considering the light body, the hops are just a little over the top. Still, quite impressive hop profile for a 5% abv beer.

My original review for this was a 3.8 but that was a couple months old. Now I have had it at a week and a half old, and raised the score to 4.1.
